Vatican City (Fides Service) - On the occasion of the opening of the pontificate of Benedict XVI Fides is collecting statements from Cardinals from all over the missionary world. Today we have statements from a few Cardinals in Africa and Asia, on Monday 25 April we will have those of Cardinals in Latin America and Oceania. We also call attention to two Dossiers published for World Mission Day last October concerning problems and challenges in Africa and Asia/Oceania.
Dossier Africa also in English: “Why are the rich so poor ?”
Dossier Asia/Oceania in Italian and Spanish: “Progresso e sottosviluppo, computer e pietre, missili e cammelli, tutto e il contrario di tutto”
